<?php // Open the text file in "read" mode $file = fopen("counter.txt", "r"); // Read the existing count $count = fgets($file); // Close the file fclose($file); // Increment the count by 1 $count = $count + 1; // Open the file again in "write" mode $file = fopen("counter.txt", "w"); // Write the new count to the file fwrite($file, $count); // Close the file fclose($file); // Output the count echo "This page has been visited $count times."; ?>
In this example, the visit count is stored in a text file called "counter.txt". The script reads the existing count from the file, increments it by 1, and then writes the new count back to the file. Finally, the script outputs the count to the webpage.
Note that this is a very basic example and there are many other ways to implement a visit counter in PHP, depending on your specific needs and requirements.
